Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Indo-Pacific: Cocos-Keeling to the Hawaiian, Marquesas and Tuamoto islands, north to southern Japan, south to Rowley Shoals in the eastern Indian Ocean and Lord Howe and Rapa islands. Replaced by Gomphosus caeruleus in the Indian Ocean (Ref. 37816 ).

Maturity: L m   ?   range ? - ? cm
Max length : 30.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 9823 )

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 8; Dorsal soft rays (total): 13; Anal spines : 3; Anal soft rays : 11. Identified by long snout when adult and distinguished by color or geography from its sibling G. caeruleus (Ref. 48636 ). Small juveniles lack the elongate snout (Ref. 37816 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

A solitary species (Ref. 90102 ) found in coral-rich areas of lagoon and seaward reefs to a depth of at least 30 m (Ref. 1602 , 58302 ). Benthopelagic (Ref. 58302 ). Feeds mainly on small benthic crustaceans, sometimes on small fishes, brittle stars, and mollusks (Ref. 2334 ).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205 ).
